“Nicolas Cage is in no way engaged with an endorsement for the Japanese snack food brand Riska”

[PR] NICOLAS CAGE IS IN NO WAY ENGAGED WITH AN ENDORSEMENT FOR THE JAPANESE SNACK FOOD BRAND RISKA
(New York, NY – Wednesday, October 11, 2017) – Over the past week numerous media outlets have falsely posted a story that Nicolas Cage is endorsing the Japanese snack brand Riska. Below please find a statement that clarifies that he has no connection to the brand as recently reported in the news media. Mr. Cage had no prior knowledge that the product was being created, nor did he grant permission to use his likeness in this way. The items were created for the Japanese release of MY TARGET, BIN LADEN (released as ARMY OF ONE in the US) and bore the artwork from the film. They were limited in number and purely intended to be promotional items that would be supplied to movie ticket holders in three theaters,” said the film’s international sales agent FilmNation International. “All parties responsible for the creation and announcement of this promotional product sincerely apologize for the use of Mr. Cage’s image in this manner and any harm that may have been caused to him and his image and reputation.”

“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
